Event #22: $10,000 H.O.R.S.E. Championship

Ship It to Cernuto

• Taso 22


Pescatori: {x-}{x-} / {2-}{10-}{7-}{a-} / {x-}
Chen: {x-}{x-} / {8-}{8-}{7-} - fold
Cernuto: {x-}{x-} / {a-}{9-}{5-}{q-} /{x-}

Picking up with the action on fifth street, we found John Cernuto lead with a bet. Max Pescatori thought for a moment before tossing out a call. Chen folded and the two were heads up to sixth.

Pescatori took the lead with a bet on sixth. Cernuto called and Pescatori fired again on seventh. Cernuto went deep into the tank and eventually stood from the table. He plopped calling chips forward and Pescatori replied with a shrug, tabling {A-}{6-}{5-} for a ten-seven low.

"Ten-seven?" asked Cernuto. "Nine-six! Ship it!" He threw {K-}{6-}{3-} on the felt and was pushed the pot. He now has about 350,000 heading into the final two tables.

John Cernuto us 350,000 15,000
Max Pescatori it 180,000 -102,000
